Scientists Push the Limits of 2D Materials

Scientists from the University of Rochester have found a new way to combine 2D materials with oxide materials, which could have important implications for a number of applications.

Optical Nanocavity Could Improve 2D Electronics

A team of electrical engineering researchers placed a 2D semiconductor (MoS2) on top of an optical nanocavity. The structure improved the material’s absorption of light, so it could absorb 70 percent of a laser that was projected onto it. This approach could lead to more efficient and flexible electronics.

New 2D Material Competes with Graphene

In many ways, graphene seems to be the cure-all solution for anything electronic, and it’s easy to see why. This 2D material, made from carbon just one atom thick, is not only incredibly thin and lightweight, b... Read More...

Introducing Stanene, 2D Tin

While many scientists are busy tinkering with graphene, a team of researchers from Stanford University and several Chinese institutions grew a brand new 2D material called stanene. The material is made of a... Read More...
